An excellent of array of Edinburgh based wedding and function acts have recently signed up to Freak Music, here’s a wee selection of them.
First Class (above) are a superb all round rock and pop act with a glorious repertoire of classics from acts as varied as Ray Charles, Ed SHeeran, Abba and the Jacksons and can also perform a short called Ceilidh set if required. They’re based in Edinburgh and happy to travel for events. Previous clients have been very impressed with the way the band connects with the audience and communication is central to the performance. They learn songs to a high standard and are able to also pull songs out of the bag when requested during the course of the event. They have a professional attitude and will always ensure that they understand your exact requirements.
Edinburgh based Acoustic duo Double Trouble (right) are available for gigs and events. They are prepared to travel and both members of the duo have experience playing in gigs and festivals all over the UK and in Europe. Double Trouble were formed in the spring of 2018 by two experienced self employed musicians; Jools who sings lead vocals and is acoustic lead guitarist is accompanied by Donal who is acoustic rhythm and bass guitarist as well as backing vocals.

Singers Secreto (right) use only the best singers in the UK for their team. In disguise an integrated into your event, if they weren’t singers, they’d be great spies! Hidden as guests or hotel workers they blend into the crowd to make what comes next a surprise. The entertainment comprises a 30 minute show, and takes several different scenarios. How did Singers Secreto come about? In the Summer of 2012 a group of professional singers were working the wedding circuit but decided that things needed a shake up. While it is enjoyable to see a group of professionals perform, who doesn’t like the element of surprise?!
